During the summer of 1609 Champlain attempted to form better relations with the local native tribes. He made alliances with the Wendat (called Huron by the French) and with th…e Algonquin, the Montagnais and the Etchemin, who lived in the area of the St. Lawrence River. These tribes demanded that Champlain help them in their war against the Iroquois, who lived further south. Champlain set off with 9 French soldiers and 300 natives to explore the Rivière des Iroquois (now known as the Richelieu River), and became the first European to map Lake Champlain. Having had no encounters with the Iroquois at this point many of the men headed back, leaving Champlain with only 2 Frenchmen and 60 natives. On July 29, somewhere in the area near Ticonderoga and Crown Point, New York (historians are not sure which of these two places, but Fort Ticonderoga claims that it occurred near its site), Champlain and his party encountered a group of Iroquois. A battle began the next day. Two hundred Iroquois advanced on Champlain's position, and one of his guides pointed out the 3 Iroquois chiefs. Champlain fired his arquebus, killing two of them with a single shot, and one of his men killed the third. The Iroquois turned and fled. This action set the tone for French-Iroquois relations for rest of the century. Champlain returned to France in an unsuccessful attempt, with the Sieur de Mons, to renew their fur trade monopoly. They did, however, reach an agreement with some merchants from Rouen, in which Quebec became an exclusive warehouse for their fur trade and, in return, the Rouen merchants supported the settlement.

The interaction was simply that she was part of the Shoshone tribe and had a brother that was the chief of another tribe. Sacagawea was the most important Native of that time!… She helped the two known discoverers, Louis and Clark, navigate the Missouri, Salmon, Clearwater, Snake, and Colombia rivers. (MORE)
Samuel de Champlain's reason behind exploration was that he was part of a fur trading expedition and then he had the intention of building a permanent settlement along the st …Lawrence river. (MORE)
Lake Champlain is a freshwater lake located in North America. It runs through northwest Vermont, northeast New York, and the southern area of Quebec, Canada. Lake Champlain is… bordered by the Green Mountains in Vermont and the Adirondack Mountains of New York. It is the sixth largest freshwater lake in the United States. This location is home to hundreds of bird species, some of which are listed as endangered. It is also home to several species of amphibians, mammals, and fish. Thousands of people spend their summers boating, swimming, and diving in the waters of Lake Champlain, and that number is steadily increasing year by year. Continue reading to learn more about this lake that is rich in both history as well as beauty.Lake Champlain is 120 miles long and about 12 miles wide at its widest point. It has an average depth of 64 feet. The deepest point is 400 feet. The lake begins in Whitehall, New York and stretches to the Richelieu River in Quebec, Canada. Over 70 different islands are situated on and around Lake Champlain. The elevation is 95.5 above sea level. There are 600 shoreline miles and over 600,000 people living on or around the basin.In 1609, the European Samuel de Champlain discovered and claimed Lake Champlain. He and a search party were canoeing up the lake to find their enemy, the Mohawk Iroquois. Lake Champlain was then used as an invasion route throughout the beginning of the 17th century as war was being waged between the Native American settlements, the French settlements, and the Iroquois. The French and British Empires fought for control of Lake Champlain between 1664 and 1763. The lake was sought after because it was the only transportation into the Northeast. After the French and Indian War had ended, settlers were given permission by colonial governors to use the land surrounding Lake Champlain. This lasted from 1763 until 1775 when the Revolutionary War started. The area went on to endure the War of 1812 and then benefitted during a commercial period. In 1823, the canals of Lake Champlain were open to the public and many vessels passed through, carrying cargo for trade or passengers to destinations. Between 1874 and 1945, however, rail lines, bridges, and the automobile made traveling by boat more scarce. After World War II ended in 1945, Lake Champlain began to be used recreationally.Lake Champlain is home to over 56 species of mammals, 318 birds, and 81 species of fish. Reptiles and amphibians also drink the lake's water. Migrating birds stop and rest at the lake or breed. Atlantic salmon and lake trout are among the most popular fish in Lake Champlain. Birding trails have been set up where you can spot Northern Pintail in the spring and fall, or Snowy Owls in the summer. Some of the mammals surrounding Lake Champlain include chipmunks, opossums, and moose. Amphibians and reptiles include turtles, snakes, toads, and frogs.Lake Champlain and the surrounding areas are home to 29 endangered species and 11 threatened species. In 1978, the Lake Champlain Land Trust was founded to protect these species. Some of the endangered and threatened species include the Eastern Spiny Softshell Turtle, the Bald Eagle, the Common Loon, the Common Tern, the Osprey, the Peregrine Falcon, and the Spruce Grouse. Several types of bats are also protected, including the Little Brown Bat and the Indiana Bat.Lake Champlain is visited every year by tourists and enjoyed daily by those living nearby. During the summer months, the lake is full of people fishing, boating, swimming, paddling, canoeing, kayaking, wind surfing, or scuba diving. Trails and areas near the lake are busy with hikers, rock climbers, hunters, and bird watchers. In the winter months, the lake offers ice fishing. Nearby towns offer museums, tours, and historical reenactments. There is plenty to see and do at Lake Champlain.Lake Champlain is a lake in North America running through Vermont, New York, and Quebec, Canada. It has a rich maritime history and connections to both French and American wars. It is home to hundreds of species of fish, birds, and mammals, many of which are endangered and protected by the Lake Champlain Land Trust. Visitors to the area can enjoy a variety of recreational water activities, as well as take in the surrounding sites and activities put on by local towns. Whether you want to plan a trip to the location or even help preserve the endangered species around the lake, this information will prove invaluable.Just like Scotland and their Loch Ness Monster, it has been rumored that Lake Champlain is the home to a mysterious creature called Champ. Champ is said to have a head like a horse, a long neck, and humps along its back. The rumor dates back to a drawing done by Samuel de Champlain, the first European to claim Lake Champlain back in the early 1600s. (MORE)
Samuel de Champlain is known as "The Father of New France", as one of the founders of Port Royal in Nova Scotia and Quebec City in what is now Quebec. From 1605 until 1633, he… played a pivotal role in the exploration and colonization of what was to become Canada. (MORE)
Many of the greatest inventors were renaissance men; they excelled in a variety of fields. Normally, these special individuals excelled at fields that did not commonly work to…gether such as art and science. Samuel Morse is one of these great men because of his complex life story.Samuel Morse was born in 1791 in Charlestown, Massachusetts. He was the first child of the local pastor Jedidiah Morse and his wife Elizabeth Ann Finley. His father was a preacher of the Calvinist faith and was a staunch supporter of the American Federalist Party. Samuel was raised in a household that attempted to preserve Puritan traditions. He was also instilled with strong Calvinist virtues and morals.Jedidiah Morse strongly believed in education. This support led him to make sure that his first-born son was properly educated. Samuel Morse first attended Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. This school was a boarding college and preparatory school, which allowed only select promising students. Samuel then went on to Yale College for his higher education. He focused in religious philosophy, mathematics, and equestrian studies. The young Morse also attended several lectures on electricity.To support himself while at Yale, Morse created and sold his personal paintings. After graduation, he decided to focus on his painting instead of an academic discipline. Most of his paintings expressed his Calvinist beliefs. Yet, he became political after a trip to England in 1811 to learn advanced painting techniques. The paintings after this trip focused on making political statements, usually against both the American Federalists and the British.Morse continued to paint for multiple decades after graduating from Yale College. He even gained critical acclaim, which ultimately led to prominent commissions. Some of his most famous commissions involved a portrait of President James Monroe and a work in the Hall of Congress. Yet, tragedy struck in 1825. Morse received a short letter from a horse messenger while in New York informing him that his wife was very ill. By the time he got home, his wife had already been buried. This tragic incident led him to pursue a more effective means of rapid long distance communication.Learning from European ideas and witnessing the electromagnetic experiments of Charles Thomas Jackson led Samuel Morse to develop the concept of a single-wire telegraph. It took several years to establish the idea of relays to make the signal travel over longer distances. In 1843, Morse finally gained funding support from Congress for the invention of an experimental line between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore. It showed promise in the 1844 Whig Party nomination of Henry Clay for United States President. The line was not officially opened until 1844, and Morse sent the famous phrase "What hath God wrought" from the Supreme Court chamber to Mount Clare Station in Baltimore.Samuel Morse did not start his life as an inventor. He was raised in a strongly religious household, which led many to think he might become a minister. However, his love of painting could not be denied. The death of his wife while he was away led him to his true calling and place in history.It was through the concept of electromagnetic technology that Morse established a way of communicating over the long-distance telegraph. The Morse code was developed as an easier way to communicate in this fashion. It formed pulses that could be marked on paper tape. Operators could then easily translate the message that was printed out on the tape into a text-based message that was readable by anyone. (MORE)
Samuel Morse is famous for a great deal of achievements throughout his lifetime. Widely recognized as a painter and inventor, his contributions to society have undeniably help…ed shape the world today. It is well worth gaining a deeper understanding of the painter and inventor, as well as what he did for this country.Samuel Finley Breese Morse was born on April 27 1791, in Charlestown, Massachusetts. After graduating from Phillips Academy in Andover, he moved on to Yale to receive an education in mathematics, religious philosophy, and the science of horses. Throughout his time at Yale, he attended lectures regarding electricity, which were hosted by Jeremiah Day and Benjamin Silliman. Morse managed to support himself through his painting skills. In 1810, he graduated with Phi Beta Kappa honors.In 1836, Samuel Morse worked meticulously to improve the basic efficiency of the early telegraph model, which was considered to be somewhat laborious at the time. Assisting him in this project was Leonard Gale, one of his colleagues from Yale. Morse eventually created the fundamentals of the telegraphic alphabet, which is more popularly known as Morse Code. By September 2 1837, a successful experiment was conducted in the Presence of Alfred Vail, which involved the use of 1,700 feet of copper wire coiled around a university room. Vail helped finance the experiments through funding acquired from his father, Judge Stephen Vail.In December 1842, Morse traveled to Washington to present a petition to Congress; the second of two attempts, to acquire the finances necessary for building a telegraph line. A bill was passed by Congress on February 23 1843. It designated $30,000 for the laying of wires between Baltimore and Washington. The bill was eventually passed by the Senate in March of the same year. In May of 1844, Morse's wire was finally completed. Later, on the 24th of the same month, a demonstration was presented in the Supreme Court of Washington. The first message, which was chosen by Annie G. Ellsworth, was successfully flashed to Vail in Baltimore.Aside from his achievements in communication, Morse was also a renowned painter that learned how to perfect his art under the guidance of Washington Allston. In 1811, he gained admittance into the Royal Academy. During his stay, he developed an interest in the neoclassical art of the Renaissance, paying close attention to masterpieces created by the likes of Raphael and Michelangelo. As he continued to hone his skills at the academy, he eventually created his renowned masterpiece entitled "Dying Hercules." Some observers believe that the artwork symbolized a political statement against American Federalists and the British.While seeking to acquire a patent on the improved telegraph design in Europe, Morse decided to pursue something that wasn't relevant to his invention at all. He met Daguerre in Paris during his 1838 trip to Europe. Daguerre, the Frenchman that discovered the process of taking photos in sunlight, showed Morse the secret behind the process. The result of their interaction led to Morse taking the first photos within the United States, as well as the first in the world depicting a human face. Previously, the Frenchman had never attempted to take pictures of living objects, mainly because it was necessary for the subject to maintain a completely rigid position for the long exposure period that was required with early cameras. However, it wasn't long before Morse and his associate John W. Draper refined the photographic process.Samuel Morse, the painter and inventor, is truly one of a kind. This individual made a number of major contributions in the world of art, as well as the evolution of technology through the creation of his telegraph lines. In 1844, the first commercial telegraph line was opened for business, creating a revolution in telecommunications. More lines were constructed throughout the United States, while Morse and Vail continued to perfect the code. As time passed, Morse's telegraph spread throughout the continent, and eventually bridged communications between Europe and North America.Aside from his achievements in communication, Morse was also a renowned painter that learned how to perfect his art under the guidance of Washington Allston.

Samuel Crompton is perhaps best known as the inventor of the "spinning mule." The device proved transformative to the spinning industry in late 18th century England. Since the…n, Crompton's invention has continued to be used throughout the world. Nonetheless, Crompton himself enjoyed little fame or fortune for his discovery. While relatively little is known about Crompton's personal life, the following notes should offer a basic understanding of both the man and his discoveries.Samuel Crompton was born in Bolton, Lancashire. He was the son of a caretaker, but he lost his father as a young boy. Upon his father's death, young Samuel began spinning to help support the family. Alongside his work on the spinning jenny, Crompton learned to play the violin. He went on to play violin at the local theatre and used his pay to support his research into the functioning of the jenny and development of the mule.Through working at Hargreaves' jenny over years, Crompton devised the idea of developing a more efficient means of spinning yarn. He spent five or six years toiling in secret, supporting his research with his own funds. By 1779, Crompton produced a mule-jenny. He built the original mule out of wood and used pulleys and bands to create the intermittent pulling and pushing mechanisms. The basic design combined the advantages of the Arkwright water frame and Hargreaves' spinning jenny.The main advantage of Crompton's mule-jenny was its ability to spin very fine yarn. Despite its delicate size, these threads were still very strong. As a result, it was possible to use the jenny to produce a wide range of fibers, including muslin, for use in a broad range of textiles. The developments that Crompton introduced also paved the way for future improvements. These included William Kelly's alterations to the draw stroke and Roberts' "self-acting" mule.When Crompton designed his mule-jenny, he originally intended only to use the machine to improve his production. However, faced with the suspicions of rivals, he was forced to either release the designs or seek a patent. As he was unable to afford a patent, he instead released the plan for public use. He went unpaid for his innovation and was forced to continue spinning to support himself and his family. Eventually, he received 5,000 Sterling from Parliament as an award for his innovation.Crompton is buried at St. Peter's Church in Bolton-le-Moors, Lancashire. The manor house, Hall i' th' Wood, where Crompton lived, is still standing in Bolton. It is now used as a local museum and is open to the public. The mule is not widely used today, though it still serves within the fine textile industry. Primarily in Italy, houses such as Bigagli and Cormatex spin some of their finer woolen and alpaca textiles on mules.Crompton is well known today as a major innovator in the textile industry. He transformed the methods of production during the late 18th century textile boom in England. However, during his lifetime, Crompton enjoyed little recognition and even less financial restitution. While the precise, technical advantages of his mule are best left to a more in-depth treatment, you can get a good overall sense of the man's achievements from the aforementioned points.Samuel Crompton was born into a family of weavers that went back several generations. In Lancashire, weavers were among the wealthiest of the merchant class. However, the Crompton family had fallen from relative wealth two generations back, when Crompton's grandfather lost the family's estate. From that point forward, Samuel Crompton's father moved the family into the Hall i' th' Wood manor, where he worked as the caretaker of the estate. (MORE)
When looking at social and economic relationships between two areas, spatial interaction starts to come into play. Spatial interaction can be very wide in scope (such as two c…ities on either side of the country), or very small in scope (such as your house and a local store). It is generally used to determine whether or not two specific areas are going to see much interaction with each other. It might sound a bit confusing at first, but once you get the idea, spatial interaction will start to make more sense.Spatial interaction looks at the interaction between areas, and how different factors can influence that interaction. Factors that can influence it include migration, people traveling, people going to work, and people going out shopping. It generally operates on three principles: Complementarity, transferability, and intervening opportunities.The basic idea behind complementarity is that, in one area, there is a shortage of or demand for a product, and a surplus of that product in another area. This will result in interaction between the two locations. As an example, someone may want to see tourist attractions, but lives in an area where there are few. The person may want to go to New York City to see those attractions. However, if the distance between the two locations is too large, this may result in fewer trips between the two places. This, in turn, means less interaction between the two areas, despite the fact that one area has a product that there is a demand for in the other.With transferability, the idea is that two areas are close enough to each other that it is easy to transfer goods, people, and information between the two. It also factors in whether there are options available that make it easy to travel, even if the distance between two locations is large. For example, whether or not flight is an option between two areas far apart can be a factor. If it costs are reasonable, then flight may make it easier to use that method, in which case there may be high transferability. If not, there may be low transferability between the two areas. To use an earlier example, if the person lives far from New York City, and cannot afford to fly there, it may make the person less likely to travel to the city. Low transferability means lower interaction while high transferability means higher interaction.Intervening opportunities are opportunities that might arise that prevent interaction between two areas. For example, if there is high demand for a product in one area, and another area has a surplus of that product, there is a chance of interaction between the two areas. However, if there is another area that has a surplus of the product that is closer to the area where the product is in demand, the interaction might be between those two areas instead of the area where the product is in demand and the first area. To continue the previous example, if there are tourist attractions between the person and New York City that the person would end up visiting instead, they would be intervening opportunities. Basically, if there are fewer intervening opportunities between two areas, there is a greater chance of interaction between the two areas. If there are many intervening opportunities between the two, there is a lesser chance of interaction.Interaction between two areas is an important thing to study, especially for businesses. That is why businesses often factor in spatial interaction when setting up shop. These companies need to know if the products the companies make will provide product in an area that is close enough to an area where that product is in demand, resulting in more customers coming to the store. These companies also need to be aware of whether or not there are similar stores that may draw business away.Edward Ullman, an American photographer, developed spatial interaction and its three principles during the 1950s. His model was known as the Gravity model of trade. (MORE)
